MLI has launched an ongoing series, titled "Indigenous Prosperity at a Crossroads," and features interviews with Indigenous people involved in the natural resource economy, particularly the oil and gas sector. This series explores beyond the headlines and political conversations about the ways in which Indigenous peoples are involved in the natural resource economy and the future of Indigenous participation in the oil and gas sector.

In this interview, Karen Ogen-Toews, CEO of the First Nations LNG Alliance, and MLI Munk Senior Fellow Ken Coates discuss the critical role the oil and gas sector plays in Indigenous reconciliation and economic independence.
